Golden Bond Sure Could Use Your Help

On March 14th the Oregon Humane Society seized 130 dogs from a puppy mill in Burns, Oregon. They are Golden retrievers and part goldens and were found covered with dirt and feces, malnourished and not socialized with humans thus very shy.

To date, Golden Bond has taken in 13 of these severely neglected dogs, with the possibility that we will get more in the coming weeks. This rescue operation is the single biggest influx of dogs we’ve had in the history of Golden Bond! Many volunteers have put in countless hours already, and there is much work yet to be done

Golden Bond is the organization that took in our Ralphie and after he was brought back to good health was offered to us for adoption. Of course when Bev and I and Ralph the golden retriever met, it was love at first sight. He has been our little buddy for almost four years now.

The rescue operation has put a huge strain on Golden Bond’s finances.

We estimate that their total veterinary expenses will exceed $10,000 (including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, lab work, x-rays when needed, dental work, worming medications and micro-chipping). The extremely poor condition of these dogs cannot be overstated.

If you wish to contribute so Golden Bond can continue this type of rescue of these wonderful dogs, you can contibute at Golden Bond Rescue.
